Hamilton Ward Map --- almost done

I’m almost ready to release the Hamilton ward map I’ve been working on the past week.

As many of my readers are aware, I’ve been requesting this data for 18 months without success. Using the Statistics Canada census tracts as a skeleton, I’ve been able to draw all the ward boundaries.

Unfortunately, my first version was slightly incorrect – I misread the census tracts in Stoney Creek and didn’t place the Ward 10/11 boundary in the proper place. This error was discovered by an eagle-eyed reader of Raise The Hammer.

I’m now drawing this boundary and am hoping to complete it shortly:
